Limited Duty

The mission of the Limited Duty Basic Training program as mandated by South Carolina is to provide the officer candidate with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform limited duties of a certified law enforcement officer in the state of South Carolina.

Limited Duty Class 3 Basic training consists of the Legal portions of the Basic Law Enforcement training curriculum.  Upon completion of the videos, the candidate will have to pass a cumulative exam.

Limited Duty Class 3 Advanced candidates are required to complete over 170 hours of video based training at their agency and complete a Firearms Proficiency and Defensive Tactics Proficiency in front of the SCCJA Mobile Training Unit, then pass a cumulative exam.

Limited Duty Officers should be trained and certified within the first year of employment in that capacity.

Testing is performed each Wednesday with Basic Law.
